MONDAY NIGHT'S DIVISION. The scene in the Lobby of the House of Commons on Monday evening during the division on the Prime Minister's motion to postpone the orders of the day was scarcely less exciting than that within the House. More than twenty members arrived just in time to find the door closed in their face, and the number was momentarily increased. Mr. Gladstone and all his Ministerial colleagues voted for the motion to postpone the Orders of the -4 Day, and were thus in the same lobby with the Con- servative party. Mr. Summers, Mr. Storey, and Mr. O'Connor Power were the only other Liberals who voted in that lobby. Mr. Biggar, by exception, voted with the Government, the rest of the Irish members going with the Liberal party. No precedent can be recalled in Parliamentary history for the course taken by the majority of the House in voting against a proposal made by Ministers to set aside a day for debate on a vote of censure on Ministers of the Crown.
